Las Vegas is really good at importing talent. No matter what show you’re watching, odds are there’s going to be a truly gifted entertainer onstage, and that’s definitely the case if you catch Vegas! The show at Planet Hollywood or Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox Speakeasy at the Mirage these days because that’s where you’ll get to hear Jaclyn McSpadden sing.
Originally from tiny Snellville, Georgia, Jaclyn has been performing in Las Vegas for four years, is a regular at Mondays Dark at the Space and is also widely recognized for playing multiple roles in one of our favorite shows of recent years, Baz at Palazzo. In this episode of All The Vegas, we talk with Jaclyn about a recent gig performing alongside Celine Dion; her musical family and vocal inspirations including her mother and Whitney Houston; how Vegas! The show is a rite of passage for transplanted entertainers; the innovative musical stylings of Postmodern Jukebox; and her return to the annual Golden Rainbow Ribbon of Life show this month at the Tropicana.
EPISODE 26: THE Vegas YOU NEED
Jaclyn is a fan of Sapporo Revolving Sushi on Spring Mountain because it’s super fun and you can order food to be delivered by a tiny musical boat.
Mark sticks to Spring Mountain Road with his (second?) recommendation of the colorful and creative Gabi Coffee & Bakery.
Brock wants to send you to Brian Newman After Dark at the NoMad Restaurant, where Lady Gaga popped in for a few songs earlier this week.
